‘No More Pink Teas:’ The Militant Surge for Woman Suffrage
Sun, March 25, 2018 | 2:00 – 3:30 pm
The 1910s saw an increase in bold suffrage activity, from large parades held in state capitals–such as the one in Hartford, Conn.–to picketing the White House, and holding “Watchfire for Freedom” protests. Connecticut, and Bridgeport in particular, was well represented in the struggle. Join Progressive-era suffrage historian Joanie DiMartino to discover how national and Connecticut suffragists participated in a surge of militant political activism that led to women gaining the right to vote in 1920.
An excellent talk to celebrate Women’s History Month! As a nod to the title, the afternoon’s activities will include light refreshments.
